THE CORNER OF REED AND QUEEN STREETS, HAMILTON, BERMUDA.
Do you have just a vague idea of the location of Bermuda? A study of the map will reveal its isolated position in the Atlantic Ocean almost equally distant from Halifax, Nova Scotia, New York City, and Charleston, S.C., about 700 miles. While recently a new theory has been advanced to the effect that it was the glaciers of the ice age that formed the islands, their origin had always been credited to coral formation. If the latter be correct, the Bermudas are the world's most northerly group of coral islands. In the path of the Gulf stream the waters are warm enough for coral life, and it is due to this warm current that the islands have such a delightful winter climate, a climate that will permit of indulging in every form of outdoor summer sport through the year.

But climate is not Bermuda's only attraction. It has an atmosphere of quiet charm that can be found nowhere else and you can sense it in this street scene of Hamilton. There is no noisy, squawking din as in our city streets, and one hears only the sound of horses' hoofs on pavements, the clang of carriage bells and the tinkle of bicycle bells. However, Bermuda can no longer claim her freedom from the automobile, for there are several small trucks and one motor car serving some of the public departments and there is now a standard gauge railway on which one can ride the imposing distance of 20-2 miles from the port of St. George all the way to Hamilton at the rate of six miles an hour behind a gasoline-driven engine.

In good condition.
